In Search of Seventeen Shortbread 1982

11 Aug

UPDATED: recipe pages here!

saucy cherie recipes, seventeen magazine recipesshortbread

Found a recipe forum entry claiming this was from an old Seventeen. Not sure if this is the November 1982 version. If anyone has the page, please share!

Seventeen Shortbread (we think)

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1⁄2 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour, unsifted

Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beat butter and sugar until creamy and fluffy.
Gradually add in flour until thoroughly mixed.
Spread or pat evenly in ungreased 13×9 pan or on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned.
Immediately after removing from oven, prick all over with fork, then cut into bars.
Cool completely before removing from pan.

Here is a crappy copy of the nacho casserole recipe. If you have an original page, please share!

    I found Chicken Crepes Mornay on your site and was so exited! It was THE FIRST dinner I ever prepared and was fantastic!!! I’ve been trying to find the recipe for a stuffed rolled flank steak also featured in Seventeen sometime between 1978 and 1982 . Can anyone help? Much Thanks! Michele

      It’s great. I still use this recipe, often substituting leftover turkey (from Thanksgiving) for the chicken. My family loves it.

    OMG!!! I made the Nacho Casserole around 1983 & got 2nd place in my hometown Beef Cook-off. My 2nd grade teacher thought it was too spicy for older people lol . It’s been a favorite of mine, but I recently misplaced the recipe. Thank you & thank Google! 🙂

        There was a similar recipe that I’ve been looking for. It was an enchilada recipe. The ingredients used red beans, cottage or ricotta(?) cheese and a can of green chilies. Lost the recipe.

    […] Here’s a bit of nostalgia, courtesy of lovely Linda O. This looks soooo much better than my ghetto photocopy from days gone by. […]
